Problem with Unstretched WoTL patch

Sorry in advance moderators if I posted this in the wrong area I just couldn't find an answer my question in my searches. Anyways I have been enjoying WoTL patched (slowdown fix + unstretched) smoothly but I took a break and reloaded my game and found my resolution being partway stretched on the bottom and right of the screen. It happens whenever I load the game from any point. If I play it fresh from a new save with no breaks in between (reloading save file or save state) the problem doesnt crop up. But if I do any of the prior (or oddly enough open a tutorial) it messes everything up. Heres how it looks below:




I also noticed its skewed to the bottom right corner of the screen too. If anyone knows a fix thanks in advance for replying. I posted this in the wrong place point me in the right direction I would appreciate it a lot seriously.

Nah, you posted it in the right place. I don't know if anyone can help you with that though. I'd honestly never even heard of an Unstretched patch myself.

You can try loading the game on a copy of the ISO that is only unstretched and see what happens, maybe?

use this code instead of the patch

this will also allow upscaling algorithms to work properly on the pixels of the game. ex: XBR

That's neat. Too bad about the sound quality though. Pretty sure that can't be fixed.

The sound is actually pretty good on your ppsspp. of course speeding it up scrambles it but overall by adjusting your sound latency depending on your sound card is pretty fine.

Can you tell please where should I use this code? I do not understand.

You may or may not have figured this out by now... But partly in an effort to reduce the number of dead threads that never got answers on the internet and partly because I'm sure I'll forget and this will be useful in the future:

In PPSSPP you have to enable cheats by ESC out of a game to the main menu, enabling cheats in the system section then going back to the previous screen. Click Cheats and click Edit cheat file. You'll paste faoronkenlee's code into that and save, though I think you'll need an iso which does not have the previously mentioned unstretched patch applied.

Also, I downloaded a cheat.db file which I don't think was necessary for this, but in case it is, there ya go.
